The dietary habits of owls are causing a few ruffled feathers at the RSPB's Dungeness nature reserve.
The education team is short of owl pellets for youngsters to dissect at its wildlife detective days.
Each day, owls spit out the pellets containing the undigested bones and fur of shrews, mice and voles.
Youngsters enjoy dissecting the pellets. they find out what owls eat and learn how importnat the countryside and farmland is to wildlife.
If you are able to collect owl pellets, without disturbing the birds, please pop them in ann envelope and post them to Heather Chantler, RSPB Dungeness nature reserve, Boulderwall Farm, Dungeness Road, Lydd, Kent, TN29 9PN
Heather Chantler at the RSPB said:" Kids love dissecting the gruesome remains of mice and voles. We would be very grateful to anyone who could send us some pellets."
